    Question Steering rag-joint to U-joint

    I did a search on the forum and couldn't find anything regarding the replacement of the factory rag-joint that connects the steering shaft to the rack and pinion. Mine is worn out and has alot of play in it. I was wondering if anybody knew where to get the more ridged u-joint connection. Or is a new rag-joint just as good for less money?

    Thanks for the information. I'll have to get under the car and see how that joint exactly installs.

    Hey I checked out the links to flaming river. I was just wondering what the 2" of DD shaft was needed for? Is the existing ford shaft not long enough to reach?

    The stock shaft fits over the rag joint coupler. The length of new DD shaft fits inside the stock shaft and inside the new stainless joint.
